Question about Sony SLV-660HF VHS VCR
I reassembled the Sony SLV-660HV after clearing a tape problem now the tape unit will not load and I get a error code of E4 01 15. Does anyone have an idea of what that code means. The unit actually tries to load but then it ejects. Thanks for any help. Bill
If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature. Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code. Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.
